Disclosed is a system that provides link and filing features for existing application programs with no functions for handwriting. It does not require application programs to be modified. This system is a terminate and stay resident (TSR) program and deals with all handwriting operations independent of the application program, a link feature preserves the correspondence between a text and its handwritten annotation. A filing feature automatically consolidates the annotated data into a single text file. Handwritten annotation means characters, symbols, and figures, providing additional information on or beside text (Fig. 1).
